Neptune Technologies and Bioressources’ patent is protected from attack

Cooley represented Neptune in multiparty patent infringement actions regarding its krill oil containing omega-3 phospholipid product against several manufacturers and distributors of competing krill oil.

Cooley previously filed a Section 337 complaint at the International Trade Commission against several competitors, resulting in all of Neptune's closest competitors entering into licensing agreements for patents relating to its fish krill oil.

In a parallel IPR proceeding filed against Neptune by Aker BioMarine, the largest krill oil producer in the world, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board issued a decision that two select krill oil patent claims are valid. As a result of this ruling, our client is positioned to secure royalties.
